, and i think he's going to have to do better in the next debates. the thing we know about barack obama from every report, he's one of the most competitive people around, so i bet you the week after the next debate, we will not be having a conversation about how poorly he did but a conversation about how great he did. the bigger issue here, the republicans are going to have a tough chance because they don't really have an opportunity to spend more money on fields. you can't just dump enough money on the ground in the last month to try to turn on a field operation. that's something you have to build over weeks and months coming up to an election and there's no evidence that i have seen anywhere, i was down in tampa last weekend dealing with a lot of the obama troops, and there's no ground i have seen where republicans have really focused on the field operation. >> guys, great of you to come in on friday. have a great weekend. >>>making news, janet napolitano is on her way to arizona after the death of nicholas ivy. that's the border agent who was killed on tuesday. his funeral is set for

to his advantage. it will be quite interesting to see what happens the next debate when it will be obama who will be the underdog instead. >> there were times when the president made a point, all there was sometimes a little me andering to get there. let me play one of those examples. >> i've got to tell you, governor romney, when it comes to his own party during the course of this campaign, has not displayed that willingness to say no to some more extreme parts of his party. >> that, nick, was one of the tougher times that he actually made a point to mitt romney directly. >> much of the time when president obama made points, it was done in a very professorial way. this clearly is a huge exaggeration on the part of romney. president obama could have made the part of him walking away from paul ryan's own plan on this, that essentially it leads medicare to run out of money eight years earlier. and he could press romney on why on earth he wants to redistribute money from ordinary taxpayers to hospital company shareholders. he didn't do any of that. >> speaking of pressing, which was 47%? wh

. and we're also told he's been practicing some zingers. and as you heard president obama saying don't necessarily expect any zingers. we learn he's working on keeping answers brief. but how important is it to have that moment, that line that gets replaying over and over the next day. >> i think it's more important to sort of attack with a knife on the economy and on foreign policy of what's happened the last three weeks which haven't been a good three weeks for the president. i think romney will try to unnerve the president by challenging him directly on this. saying you failed to lead these last three weeks and your vision for the economy is just wrong and try to get under his skin that way. i don't think obama is very flappable. but in terms of these are your policies, they don't work. we tried likable. now we need competent, he's probably going to try to do that. >> we all remember the zingers. i knew jack kennedy. we remember those things. but ultimately voters do they take away a more general feeling from the debates rather than any one line they might remember ten years later?
